Victoria Beckham is one of the biggest beauty influencers around. She has an eponyomous make-up line for a start, her signature brown smoky eye is synonymous with the fashion designer and then there are her video tutorials.

Thanks to world-renowned make-up artist Lisa Eldridge, responsible for more A-list make-up looks than you can shake a stick at, VB joined the make-up tutorial brigade with a lengthy recording - as beauty how-tos go - hosted jointly with Lisa. In it Victoria talks viewers through her go-to party make-up look. If you're keen to up the ante for your Christmas party, Christmas office Zoom call or New Year's Eve celebrations, this video is well worth a watch.

Kicking off with their base, concealer and brows already expertly applied, Lisa and Victoria take their viewing audience through their finishing touches. 'We can't leave the house without our eyebrows done,' exclaims Victoria, before revealing that her other must-have is her Victoria Beckham Beauty Bitten Lip Tint, £30, and a liner.

Victoria applies her Bitten Lip Tint first, which she says sits better on a dry lip. Next the designer gently applies her lip liner around the outer edges of her lips.

Victoria moves on to create her signature brown smokey eye, adding a light pop of pale pink on the centre of her lid when she's almost done.

Pay close attention to the video and you get a glimpse into the Beckhams' Christmas gifting habits too. When explaining what she has wrapped up under the tree for David, Victoria sighs 'What do you get for David Beckham? He has everything!'. To answer her own question, Victoria reveals that she bought him a jigsaw puzzle of himself and the kids.

Victoria also goes into detail about her go-to hair style - the messy bun. After washing, she rough-dries it before twirling it up into a bun on the top of her head. 'That's how I go into work every single day', she says.

Victoria Beckham Beauty: The Products

Victoria Beckham Beauty Posh Gloss
1 of 8

'Throwing back to my Spice Girl days, Posh would always wear a high shine clear gloss with a heavy lip liner to make her lips look fuller. That's when my love affair with gloss started, but I always found it heavy and uncomfortable to wear, and my hair would inevitably get stuck in it - especially riding on the back of David's motorcycle. So it became my mission to create a gloss that was beautiful, with reflective, mirror-like shine—but wearable and not at all sticky. I believe we got it right,' says Victoria.

Victoria Beckham Beauty Bitten Lip Tint

For a subtle wash of colour as opposed to a sticky, heavier liquid lipstick or gloss, the Bitten Lip Tint is an ultra-light, weightless gelée formula to hydrate and nourish lips, imparting the softest kiss of colour.

Victoria Beckham Beauty Smoky Eye Brick Eyeshadow Palette, £48
3 of 8

Victoria knows her way around a beautiful eyeshadow; her compacts house an entire eye look in one place. These powders are buttery, opaque and blend with ease, too. Choose from palettes with matte or shimmer shades.

Victoria Beckham Beauty Lid Lustre Crystal Infused Eyeshadow, £28
4 of 8

A hit of glitter on the eye? Yes, please. Apply with a fingertip to pick up most of the sparkle, and pat on to the centre of the eye to create a seriously pretty gleam. This eyeshadow is pressed, not loose, so you'll face no fall-down of shadow, either.

Victoria Beckham Beauty Satin Kajal Liner, £20
5 of 8

Queen of the smudged eyeliner, it was only natural for VB to nail this. This kohl pencil is as soft and buttery as they come. Create a sleek graphic line with a sharpened nib, or buff it out gently with a liner brush for a diffused, smoky finish.

Victoria Beckham Beauty Cell Rejuvenating Power Serum, £180
6 of 8

Victoria Beckham and Sarah Creal wanted to create the ultimate all-purpose serum. Their aim was to be able to use a single serum and their moisturiser, rather than reaching for every lotion and potion under the sun in the midst of a complicated skincare routine. They joined forces with Professor Augustinus Bader to produce a do-it-all serum that seriously delivers.

Victoria Beckham Beauty Cell Rejuvenating Priming Moisturizer, £92
7 of 8

This was the first collaboration between Victoria Beckham Beauty and Professor Augustinus Bader, a moisturiser packed with actives that plump and tone as well as smoothing skin from the off, so much so, they decided to highlight its complexion priming abilities in its name.

Victoria Beckham Beauty Future Lash Mascara
8 of 8

This ultra-black formula promises defining, lengthening, curling and volumising results, all whilst being hypoallergenic, waterproof, sweat-proof, smudge-proof and suitable for contact lense wearers. Victoria Beckham herself says 'This is the best mascara I have ever used!'.
